norfind's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect!"

PreSonus HP-4
I have recently and used with a Beyerdynamics DT770 headphones and a Presonus Audiobox USB sound card and I am fully satisfied.
It has the features you would expect on a device of this type (Button / mono monitor mute), potentiometers are of good quality and enjoyable. The output level is quite high (although my headphone makes 250 Ohms I never exceeds half the level).
I really felt a big difference from the first use, a huge gain in the low frequencies (low I found on my headphone) and a dynamic boosted.
For the price it is definitely a bargain!

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very pretty"

PreSonus HP-4
frankly solid.
good metal everywhere. AVIC I read ... Finally A review that criticized the strength ... bin after it is shielding tank. but for normal users and that's great!
sound .. I have no fat to ab ... I do not care a bit that's fine.
I am very satisfied with the mute and mono that I did not expect this product. So it makes me a small monitor at hand.

2 points negative.
Indeed there is a very big win!
So we use the knobs at the start of the race and where he is weakest. So the stereo is not great below 5% of that by knob + left or right. Remedy: reduce the output of the soundcard to get the knobs halfway
2nd point is not rack .. brief

arallu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" NICKEL!"

PreSonus HP-4
I have this little pre-amp for the past 5 months for the home studio.
It is plugged into my boss in on BR 600 and out .... on headphones and a pair of ADAM A5. What I liked is that we can manage the volume of the monitor directly on the machine (and also to mute).
I love its transparency. I ordered at the same time a low-end model for output and the difference is striking. It has nothing to do!
After it cheap but it's sturdy so I think once you bought is good for a good time.
Only a small black dot. I have a sennheiser hd 25 and the volume to 4 Chuis thoroughly. PZS serious but just know!

With experience, I would do this choice. is not the pro stuff but not the range of either. suited for home studios.

PreSonus HP-4

How long have you use it?


Last night (10/06/2009)

Have you tried many other models before buying it?


It was not before the console phonic (whence the instrumentals), which also served as a control point count

What is so special that you like most and least?



Appliance that inspires confidence with a nice look

Several of the routing solutions

</ol> The -

Hey bé! on / off button? we put now? I like when it's not too plop in the headphone even if I set the volume to zero.

A shame that with a low-impedance headphones (45 Ohms) one is obliged to keep the headphone volume to one quarter if not less so as not to ruin the ears.



How would you rate the quality / price?


It is good

With experience, you do again this choice? ...


Uh yes, seeing the EQ3B suddenly .... Would there be a desire .... but if one day my M-Audio Quattro left me, well I would try the presonus again ....
Then immediately I continue to tell me that I had no place (that's for sure) or the need for a rack unit 19 ", but I will perhaps regret it one day ... .
Finally, I want to point out that zero volume for me is total silence. No ghosts to report. I did the test with a deposit of mine who improsture severe, and I'm formal.
Edit the 13/10
I also had the opportunity to use the monitor output to my amplifier TECHNICS SU V500 for listening on my JMLab Symbol6 and I could not find a particular color or alteration of sound.

- How long have you use it?
1 year regularly.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
its solid its quality manufacturing
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
- How do you report qualitprix?
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

Buy will have one year to use headphones back in my home studio and scne. I wanted two amplifier channels for the headphones and the Stereo input symtriques to cover long distance cables.
- Quality manufacturing, solid knobs that do not move in time
- Reserved for the amplification: always use my home 1 / 5 if the knob is too much
- Among symtriques

The -:
- Rear inputs and outputs in XLR jack and not, however, Jack's enough space to put the adapter jack / XLR is that I did.
- Price

rainwalker's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

PreSonus HP-4
-I for 3 months.
-4 Headphone outputs, 2 monitor outputs (L / R) and 2 inputs.
-I bought it for € 111.00, it's still expensive for what it does.
"I'd need a multiplier output headphones like my RME Fireface 800 does not offer me an outlet. But that is exactly what this unit has two outputs for the monitors that other brands did not offer for that price, I exclude Behringer.

RaphRaymond's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

PreSonus HP-4
I IT CAN BE USED for over a month, I have no complaints except for particular its huge gain. I use it with a table and I have to sub-module I left if I want to be in a reasonable range of the potentiometer ... but that attention to the breath coming fast. Otherwise it does not exceed two or small stroke after the third 0.
4 headphone outputs stereo output jack 6.35 more general LR symmetric, this little box can serve as a small monitoring interface to play easily on the volume of headphones and listening studio, rather ideal home studio, but unnecessary if you already have a mixer that can do more. One can even mute the speakers cut without touching the volume control to listen, well seen and very pleasant.
A very good little machine. The sound is more transparent, in any case it is enough to return headphones for artists and sound recording for the same technician.
Just a little flat for gain too important, once the knob must be lifted only manage the volume shipment which is not conventional ...

solo84's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

PreSonus HP-4
Compact, solid, non-slip chrome buttons, a stereo output (and therefore able to place it between the output soundcard of a PC and the amp, for example) with switch "mute". The sound is very good, the gain is powerful, short but good!

Edit the 26-10-2008:
Again good headphone amp, for cons avoid using it through to the speakers because the output lines are not passive, not entirely neutral.

Edit the 12-5-2011:
2 knobs scratchent abominably

LekMan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

PreSonus HP-4
I reu the bte this morning.
The beautiful stuff, the pots that is not afraid to put in each rglage spices, small => habitable.
Before I worked with a SB Audigy and I plugged the headphones on the external rack (with a knob output level).
I bought a headset amplifier for neighbors, for me (to register without the microphone back) to SAVE money (that is cheaper than a amp vchement and monitoring speakers) and place, and finally, to remain compatible with multimedia requirements.
Given the quality of sound with a Sennheiser HD 477, I'm sorry no choice. I use it with Midi Mia and I have no breath. on the other hand, you should use HP-4 with a headphone as high impdance given that the amplification is tough, as you may have fantmes even at 0.
